A bunch of us expats are getting together for a potluck. Most of the "gringos" who hang out here in Bucerias are Canadians, and they all go back to Canada for the hot, humid summer. Those of us who can't afford to maintain two households live here all year, and really enjoy the long ,hot, quiet, tourist-free summer. There will probably be 25-30 of us - grilling hot dogs; I made potato salad and brownies. Lots of people bringing other good stuff. No fireworks, but I think one of our friends has some sparklers stashed away.

If all goes well there will be a jkath "siting" I hate when things are so up in the air with only hours until departure. Sorry jkath - I just don't know yet.

I am driving my cousin back to the airport, a 4+ hour drive round trip. Dh is working, he received the plans for a large project on Wednesday and needs to prepare the estimate ASAP, seeing he is leaving soon on a week long motorcycle trip with his brother. Probably leftovers when anyone gets home...

I have to work...the ONLY holiday the Firm has a function on, grrrr...expecting 1000 people, so it should be fun.

We are on f and 12th NW, and the event is on the roof top, looking right at the Washington Monument, so we couldn't ask for better seats for the show! I just hope the rain holds off...

I'm making potato salad to take to a cookout this evening, then doing voter registration at a farmer's market event, then going to the cookout, then shooting off fireworks that someone bought in S.C. (which I think are illegal in Virginia) at the Va Beach oceanfront. Happy Independence Day, everyone!

I, too, have to work. The 4th is THE biggest day of the year for us. We're expecting anywhere from 600 - 1K people. I'll eat at work. Not sure what PeppA has planned for the kids. We lit the majority of the fireworks off last night. There are a few more left that she will light off tonight.

That said, I desperately need to get my lazy rear OFF the pc and get caught up on the dishes, assemble the new lawn mower (second one in a month), and try to get some grass cut before the landlord sees the yard. I want to get some fishing in as well. There's at least one spot I want to try. Hopefully there's some decent catfish in there (one of those recently produced a 55 lb Flathead catfish).

Looks like rain, then the sun comes out. I'm just about to get the smoker going.

Since we're heading into the city after we eat, I don't expect to be drinking any hard liquor during the afternoon. I have a few Sam Adams and even more coronas in the outside fridge.

I'm pretty sure they'll do the fireworks rain or shine, what with it being televised and all....

Be safe and happy everyone. Cook well, drink well, and laugh often.
